Cooper Temple Clause Split!
They still love eachother and stuff, but enoughs enough
The Cooper Temple Clause have split up, they have announced.
Following their triumphant UK tour (click here to read a review of the last night of their tour...), TCTC have decided to go their separate ways.
The split would appear to be a result of singer Dan's decision to leave the band. In a posting on the bands official website, he writes: "Dear Team Cooper, it is with a sad and heavy heart that I must announce that The Cooper Temple Clause have decided to split up."
The teary statement continues: "Last week I informed the rest of the boys that I would be leaving the band. As I hope you will all be able to understand, it was perhaps the most difficult decision I have ever had to make.
When the only life you have ever known is that of your five best friends and the music you make, the thought of leaving that life is not one to be considered lightly and I assure you all that the decision was not an easy one to make. Nonetheless, it was something I felt I had to do. I can only apologise from the bottom of my heart for the disappointment this will undoubtedly cause many of you."
In the wake of this decision the rest of the boys agreed to call it a day and pursue other interests. Friendships are well and truly intact and the love very much remains within the camp.

Thanks for the music, boys.
